Parents have the basic right to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their children. The Constitution protects this right. But today, government overreach and destructive ideologies threaten children and the rights of American moms and dads.
Government officials have broken the trust of parents. Schools are using toxic ideas about race and gender, rooted in Critical Theory, to define students’ identities. Teachers and administrators are treating students as members of the opposite sex behind their parents’ backs. Counselors and doctors are fast-tracking children to undergo experimental and irreversible cross-sex interventions on their bodies.
Congress and the states can strengthen policies and laws to protect the fundamental rights of parents. The Promise to America's Parents provides lawmakers with a path to restoring what has been broken.
Join us for a panel discussion with experts to learn how to protect parental rights and children from today's ideological threats.
